Untreated dry eye Consequences

Do you know these consequences? Very serious yet, are doctors aware of them? If yes, how could they only recommend OTC drops? If no, are they qualified?

Punctal cautery

Some good/ bad news
For anyone that read my previous posts, I made it to Asia and have had the best two weeks. Eyes included as I think the humid weather helps.
